New birds from yesterday
I almost forgot to let everyone know about my first of the year birds that I saw yesterday!! I put my hummingbird feeder up in the morning and found 3 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (CHECK) buzzing around the feeders by lunch time (actually the two males were fighting over the feeders territory). I then found an American Redstart (CHECK) singing up in the tree while waiting for some fellow employees (actually it got very close to us and wished I had my camera with me). Later in the day I found a Red-eyed Vireo (CHECK) singing in an area that we were working in . . . . well kinda . . . . I think I had them over the weekend but wasn’t 100% sure it was a Red-eyed Vireo until today’s find.
Pictures above have all been taken previously; none of these photos were taken with yesterdays find! I have been busy the past few days with some personal things and not been able to do much birding! Lucky nature has been finding me and I work in an area where these guys can be easily found without trying too hard!! Expect many more checks from me over the next few days and who knows . . . . maybe a few lifers (more to come soon)
BTW: Nexrad Radar images were showing many birds moving north last night (click to animate)! I can only imagine what new birds I will find today in Allegany State Park! I promise to keep everyone updated with my finds!
